Why is this not good? Show us your work, please. 

It's an acute example of rewarding poor behavior. Mish has broken lots of Marlins and some national baseball news, but he's also guessed a ton and been wrong or at least somewhat inaccurate. I write for a few different fantasy baseball websites, and we are not allowed to use Mish as a source because he has been wrong so often. He's a prime example of the Twitter Journalism idea of "it's better to be first than to be right".

Fair point.

But I do have to ask, how is it that you write for websites that don't exist?

Dream Baseball would be so much cooler than Fantasy Baseball. 

I dunno...

Dream Baseball: Walking up to home plate and realizing you forgot to put on a pair of pants.

Fantasy Baseball: Walking up to home plate and placing a protection spell on yourself because there's a literal dragon pitching.

I prefer Fantasy! But Science Fiction Baseball wouldn't be bad either.

"And here's the pitch ... no, wait, the manager has called time. He's decided to use his one Wormhole per game to pull three superior sluggers from a far away galaxy for this inning. New rule this year, I'm still not sure how I feel about it ..."

A true classic! Though I guess they were kinda wrong about how 2020 would look.... Not nearly enough pandemic in the game.

Agreed with P-BR, super fun game.

Robots throwing 150+ MPH ... lol.

Oh and only a home run if it was to straightaway center field.

Mines added to the playing field in certain innings.

Just ... classic.
